APCO Prima PPG Glider

$2,150.00

Prima was born in the early 1990’s. Since then thousands have been delivered, faithfully serving in paragliding schools all over the world.

Probably the longest produced classic trainer – it is equally well suited for teaching free flying and perfect for entry level paramotoring.

Product Description

Now this classic wing has been modernised once again – the 4th version of the wing has been released on the market. The wing is exactly the same as before, but now with FlexonÔäó batten system , pioneered by APCO – installed across L/E (today standard on entire APCO range).

Prima IV also features improved flare and adaptability for paramotor flying. The canopy is also more rigid (no tip movement), with redesigned, modern handling – direct and responsive in comparison with past designs.

The rest of Prima specifications remain the same. As always, produced from bomb proof, indestructible Gelvenor cloth combined with heavy duty lines, to ensure long lasting life.

Second generation Gelvenor cloth is much improved – as durable as ever, but significantly lighter without sacrificing any of its famous qualities (you will be surprised by how light it is) The direct benefit of the new Gelvenor is its contribution to even further improved launch and safety – making Prima IV equally well adapted for free flying schooling or paramotor training.

Many schools are amazed, unbelievably witnessing the years of service Prima IV can deliver. All this for a little cost – specially designed to be affordable for all. As a schooling/entry level glider it is still the best investment on the market.

CONSTRUCTION AND MATERIALS

Materials

The glider is made from tear resistant Ripstop Nylon cloth, which is P.U. coated to zero porosity and then siliconized to give the fabric high resistance to the elements. Different cloth is used for the top, bottom and ribs due to their different functions. The lines are made of superaramid covered with a polyester sheath for protection against UV, wear and abrasion. The bottom section of the brake lines is made of polyester because of its better mechanical properties. The karabiners that attach the lines to the risers are made of stainless steel.
